Commentary by Phill B.
Another great day in our extended Indian summer and Phill B. took 22 hikers to the end of the Quirke 2 mine site. We had lunch on the rocky escarpment overlooking Quirke Lake and were reluctant to leave as the sun and the view were at their best.

Led by Claudette L., over 20 members took to the trails on another beautiful late Fall, or is it early Winter, day at Sheriff Lake. Claudette led us on a round-about route to where the fireplace used to be and we had our lunch in the sun there.

This morning, under overcast skies, Ron and June lead a group of twelve hikers to the Quirke Tailings site. There were many signs of wildlife activity.  We found an area where a large group of elk appeared to have spent the night, fox tracks and the beginning of an otter slide.  We enjoyed lunch overlooking Evans Lake.  It was a great outing with everyone excited about the new fallen snow.   PHOTOS
